Line nail tips with a creamy white polish, such as OPI Nail Lacquer in Funny Bunny, $8.50. Once the tips are dry, paint the entire nail in a flesh-tone nude, such as L'Oreal Paris Pro Manicure Nail Polish in In The Buff, $4.99, a modern alternative to the predictable pink.
2. Nail Pencil
Sally Hansen 2-in-1 Nail White Pencil, $2.95, has a plastic cuticle pusher on one end for gently easing back cuticles and also for grooming under the nail. The other end has a white pencil tip that you can simply wet and line underneath the natural tip of your nail for instant brightness.
Kiss Featherlight Nail Kit, $5.99, offers remarkably thin and flexible nails that last up to 10 days. And no need to worry about harming your natural nails. The glue in the kit contains vitamins A, E, and B5 for healthy nail growth, and removal is simple with a quick soak in acetone.
Body lotion has gotten a makeover from an unlikely source -- the hair-care aisle! Olay Quench Mousse, $5.99, shares many qualities with that beloved hair-styling product: It's lightweight, fast-absorbing (24 percent faster than Olay's traditional lotion), and a little goes a long way. The secret lies in the formula, which replaces a lot of the heavy thickeners commonly used in body lotions with fluffy "micro-bubbles" that melt once the product hits your skin, allowing you to spread it evenly.
